The 4th Workshop on Case Studies in Bayesian Statistics was held at the Car negie Mellon University campus on September 27-28, 1997. As in the past, the workshop featured both invited and contributed case studies. The former were presented and discussed in detail while the latter were presented in poster format. This volume contains the four invited case studies with the accompanying discus sion as well as nine contributed papers selected by a refereeing process. While most of the case studies in the volume come from biomedical research the reader will also find studies in environmental science and marketing research. INVITED PAPERS In Modeling Customer Survey Data, Linda A. Clark, William S. Cleveland, Lorraine Denby, and Chuanhai LiD use hierarchical modeling with time series components in for customer value analysis (CVA) data from Lucent Technologies. The data were derived from surveys of customers of the company and its competi tors, designed to assess relative performance on a spectrum of issues including product and service quality and pricing. The model provides a full description of the CVA data, with random location and scale effects for survey respondents and longitudinal company effects for each attribute. In addition to assessing the performance of specific companies, the model allows the empirical exploration of the conceptual basis of consumer value analysis. The authors place special em phasis on graphical displays for this complex, multivariate set of data and include a wealth of such plots in the paper.

This third volume of case studies presents detailed applications of Bayesian statistical analysis. Although the applications are from a variety of areas, the emphasis in this volume is on econometrics. The first two volumes have proved to be valuable references for statistical instructors and data analysts.Review:
From the reviews:
"...well written and can be appreciated by those with little biology background...In general, I found many of the papers collected in this book interesting...readers who are interested in applying Bayesian analysis in real case studies may find this book useful. One might consider using this book as supplementary material in graduate-level seminar courses on Bayesian data analysis."
Journal of the American Statistical Association, June 2004
"The volume as a whole illustrates the range of models that can now be fitted following the Markov chain Monte Carlo revolution, assess the behavior of posterior summaries under model misspecifications."
